It's been quite some time since we have seen the Voice of the Voiceless in a WWE ring, or any ring for that matter. The closest he has been to a mat was his appearance at the latest UFC pay-per-view. At least Punk's baseball-watching antics have not stopped.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Marc Middleton of Wrestling Inc.)., Punk's next feud is being discussed, and it turns out that we may see the implosion of one Paul Heyman guy.
Of course, it is only speculation, but one can wonder how Vince will write Punk back onto television. It is a clear favorite among many that Punk will be a babyface upon his return to television.
Before his giant heel turn at Raw 1000, Punk ran with the WWE title as a face and was very successful.
Now, the big question is, who will Punk face...well, as a face? The heels at the moment are the Big Show, Mark Henry (maybe?), Curtis Axel, Brock Lesnar, Ryback and Damien Sandow (big stretch). He will almost definitely be battling for the title at some point when he returns.
My personal opinion: I think Punk will win the Money in the Bank and cash it in on Cena. It would be his third briefcase, so that's also a stretch. Especially if they want the two Paul Heyman guys to do battle against each other, then the briefcase is out of the question.
It's all speculation, but that's what makes WWE fun to watch. As wrestling fans, we can speculate, but that doesn't mean we are right.

This is my 99th article with Bleacher Report, so I have something very special planned for my next piece.
See all of you next time. Comment below what you think will happen with CM Punk. The summer is almost here and that means the summer angle is creeping closer as we speak.
